A Poor Boy With Torn Shoes Walked In A Shoe Store. No One Expects This Treatment.
So today this little boy came into the store and asked me ‘Where do you guys have the cheapest shoes?’ So I showed him where they are. Then I asked him if these were for school. He said yeah. I looked at his feet and saw the shoes that he was wearing were destroyed. Literally, they were breaking apart. I asked him if he wore that for the first day of school and he said yes. He told me in a low voice a story and that sh*t broke my heart. I can’t share the story because I respect his privacy.
I told him don’t worry. Pick any shoe you like.
He said why ‘I’m not gonna have the money’
I told him ‘Don’t worry, I’ll buy them for you.”
He was like ‘Really?!!’ I said yeah of course. He got his favorite shoes. And I told him to make me a promise: to get good grades and be good in school.
He said he promises. He kept telling me this is unreal and couldn’t believe it was happening. So my new buddy walked off of finish line with a brand new pair of shoes for the school year..
Nothing makes me more happy than seeing someone with a smile on their face. Helping people is the best gift god has given me. Have a good school year. Bless up.”
